Lorez AlexandriaDidn't We ... LP
Pzazz, Late 60s. Very Good- ... $18.99
Obscure album by Lorez, with a mix of jazz and pop stuff, and arrangements (mostly) by pianist Ronell Bright. Bright plays in the group backing Lorez, as does the great tenor player Teddy Edwards.

✨✧ Lorez AlexandriaMore Of The Great Lorez Alexandria ... LP
Impulse, 1964. Very Good- Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
A beautiful album by one of our favorite jazz singers! Lorez Alexandria is in a perfect setting here – singing with subtly sophisticated backings that really let her take charge, and direct the songs tightly with her incredibly soulful vocals! Instrumentation is mostly in a small combo ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Lorez AlexandriaWoman Knows ... LP
Discovery, 1979. Very Good+ ... $13.99
Great late work by Lorez Alexandria – and one of the many worthwhile sides she cut for the Discovery label. The arrangements are by Jack Wilson and Charles Owens, and the music is by a small combo featuring the two of them, plus vibes, guitar, and rhythm. There's a nice moody version of ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Rashied Ali & Royal BlueNY Ain't So Bad ... LP
Survival, 1976. Very Good+ ... $24.99
Avant jazz meets The Blues, as Rashied Ali and combo back up singer Royal Blue on this set of tracks released on Ali's own label. Blue's style isn't as heavy-handed as you'd expect, and at times, it shares a bit with 70's singers like Joe Lee Wilson. The band includes Marvin Blackman, Charles ...

AliveCall It Jazz ... LP
Redwood, 1981. Very Good ... $4.99
The second album by this excellent all-female San Francisco jazz combo – a live date that's even more cooking than their debut! As before, there's a sweetly breezy style to the record – that hip SF sound of the 70s – with echoes of Braziliana and soul amidst the group's jazzier ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Mose AllisonAutumn Song ... LP
Prestige, 1959. Very Good+ ... $6.99
Mose Allison's last album for Prestige Records – before moving onto even bigger fame at Columbia and Atlantic during the 60s!

Prestige, Early 60s. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... $4.99
Like many other 70s reissues in the Prestige/Milestone/fantasy family, this set compiles 2 early albums by Mose. Unlike a lot of his later material, this set's mostly instrumental, though he does get in some vocals on about a third of the tracks.

Mose AllisonLocal Color ... LP
Prestige, 1957. Very Good- ... $12.99
An early, rootsy Mose Allison sides, mostly instrumental, bluesy piano trio numbers, but Mose busts out with some vocals on an early version of his signature tune "Parchman Farm" and "Lost Mind", and a spot of trumpet on "Trouble In Mind" . He's joined by Addison ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Mose AllisonMose Allison Takes To The Hills ... LP
Epic, Early 60s. Near Mint- ... $14.99
Incredible stuff – and Mose Allison at his finest! The record's got a rough and hard-grooving quality that surpasses even Allison's other albums for Prestige and Columbia from the time – an almost bluesy approach that comes out in the style of the recording – which features more ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Amanda AmbroseAmanda Ambrose Recorded Live ... LP
RCA, 1963. Very Good- ... $1.99
Amazing early work from Amanda Ambrose – recorded in a style that's easily as hip as the best live sides from Nina Simone or Roberta Flack – but years before either singer sounded this great! The style is an ultra-hip version of jazz inflected with plenty of soul – reaching back ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Ernestine AndersonHot Cargo ... LP
Mercury, 1956. Very Good ... $5.99
A great early set from singer Ernestine Anderson – material recorded in Sweden with a sound that's even more sweetly swinging than some of her American albums of the time!

Pearl BaileySings For Adults Only ... LP
Roulette, 1957. Very Good ... $4.99
Not as "adult" as you might think – at least given the way the word is used today – but pretty great work by Pearl nonetheless! The tunes themselves are a bit "blue" in terms of subject matter – tales of girls with hot pants, loose love, and the kind of ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
